American Business School visit Allstate NI Offices

Last week 10 Kogod School of Business undergraduate students from The American University, Washington DC travelled to Ireland as part of their International Management Practices course from 13th to 19th May 2013. The purpose of this visit was to facilitate student's understanding of the business environment in Ireland by visiting various companies showcasing the cultural and social environment that has had such a significant impact on commercial activity.

The Kogod School of Business at American University was the first Business School established in Washington, DC and one-third of their faculty and 25% of their student body come from outside of the United States. Indeed on the day of visit Allstate NI welcomed students hailing not just from America, but also China, Colombia, Italy, and Yemen too.

During their time in the Allstate NI Belfast building, students were given a brief history of Allstate and Allstate NI by ANI Managing Director Bro Mc Ferran on our background and history. Following this, students had the opportunity to hear from a couple of Allstate NI's American employees about what it's like to move to Northern Ireland and to live & work in a different country. Employees in various sectors then gave talks on what their departments do for Allstate. This included Software and Mobile Application Development as well as Infrastructure Services, Innovation and Quantitative Research Analysis. Rounding up the day students also heard a few words from Mike Noble, skills manager at Momentum—the Trade Association representing Northern Ireland's ICT sector offering valuable insight to business culture in Northern Ireland and its rapid IT sector growth.

Speaking of their experience at Allstate NI, Associate Professor of International Business, Heather Elms stated,

The students were particularly impressed with Allstate as an example of global coordination (between the US, NI, and Indian operations)—we talk a lot about this in the classroom, but it was great for the students to experience such an active example".
